This was our 6th time at this resort although we had to go a little later than usual this year and ended up there over the March Break. While there, the Coronavirus really took off so the resort seemed less busy than usual. There was plenty of parking and the pool was only busy a couple of days. We always get a pool view room and did so this time as well. If you're out early enough, you can see staff doing the cleaning early in the morning. They added sliding doors to the buildings which is a great idea for when you arrive and your hands are full. We usually eat at Frankie Farrell's on the resort and they have $5 off coupons which weren't in stock when we were there. Only other minor issue is again I wish that they would provide coffee packets for the duration of your stay. we drive so we are able to bring coffee from home but if we flew, it would be more difficult. The best part of the resort is the pool area. Lots of chairs and Lani's Luau is awesome with a great variety of drinks and great staff. The most disappointing part of that area was the people there this time around. Groups were drinking by the pool all day and then leaving their towels on the ground or chairs and all their garbage piled up for staff. There are garbage cans all over and an area to return your towels. Also, I wish they would come out with a rule about throwing footballs, frisbees and other things around the pool that's usually full of little kids. A football thrown by an adult came within inches of hitting my young daughter in the head and if it would have, the football would have been thrown over the fencing. People aren't considerate so please make it a rule. Other than that, the trip did not disappoint and we hope to return next year. Read less

We have been staying here for the last 8 years every March. I think this year was our last. The cleanness has gone down hill. This time we stayed 5 nights then left for our cruise and came back for another 5 nights. The last 5 nights they had sent an email out stating they are upping cleaning around the hotel due to the civil 19. We went to the pool that night and it was pretty gross, no one picking up trash or wiping anything down. Locals had taken over the pool, until security came walking thru. Then the locals scattered like little mice. We saw trash on the hallway floors that was still there 24 hours later. The furnishings are showing lots of wear and age, I’ve been told the past couple of years they are working on replacing but have not seen any changes. I mentioned these concerns upon check out and they did nothing but apologize. With all the options in the Orlando area, I think it’s time to start exploring those options. Read less

Lake Buena Vista Resort and spa is an amazing place to stay. The resort is made up of 5 buildings. 3 of the building's surround the main pool which has a pirate ship with internal slide, also in the pool area is a hot tub and a bar. The other 2 buildings are just over the road and with them you have the Irish pub which serves great food you also have a small shop,pizza hut,arcade and a gym. The room's are fantastic and very spacious and clean and also have everything you need for a self catering holiday. The resort also offers room cleaning services (little extra) spa treatments, nails,massages (little extra) and more. This please is literally only 10 minutes from the parks(by car) , 2 minutes from a wallmart(by car) 2 minutes walk to a shopping mall. I would recommend a car but not essential as they do transport to the parks or you could get a taxi. If you're looking for somewhere to stay give this place a look first and if you have any questions I recommend sending a message to Trish on there Facebook page/messenger. This lady is an absolute star and will answer all your questions and help in any way possible. We ourselves only had chance to stay 4 nights due to our travel company saying we had to board the last flights out of Orlando due to this covid-19. If I could give it more than 5***** I would but I will definitely be booked at this resort again. Read less
